New Software & Hardware
I recently purchased a Numark Mixtrack Edge off ebay and when it arrived I found it wasn't compatible with Virtual DJ 5.2. There is software for this controller on the virtual DJ website but that wouldn't load on 5.2 either. The only option I had was to spend more money on Virtual DJ 7.4.1 Pro, which initially I wasn't happy about.
Since purchasing the software I think it was the best option really. I have worked with 5.2 for so long and I needed to upgrade. The one big advantage of Virtual DJ 7 is the multiple decks, although using the controller is difficult with more that two decks. I've had a great deal of fun playing around with the new controller and software and as my health is much better now I am considering finding a new station to broadcast on. That has to wait for the moment, I still have a lot of projects on hold which I am keen to work on.

End Of 1Radio.org
At 12:00am UK GMT on 01/01/2014 1Radio.org closed down for good and since then my health problems have worsened to the point that I have decided to quit broadcasting indefinitely. I have also put on hold all my planned YouTube projects and have no idea if, or when, I will get around to completing these.
I will, when I feel well enough, continue to support and promote unsigned bands & artists through the UK Get Discovered website. My main focus at the moment has to be my health condition but in the event this should vastly improve then I won't rule out joining another station in future.
I would like to thank everyone that has encouraged and supported me over the past 4 years since I started broadcasting and I have made many really good friends through the radio shows. There is a lot of superb musical talent out there just not being heard on mainstream radio, this needs to end and a better playing field created for all artists.
